No5 Barristers’ Chambers continued their #GetShirty campaign by raising more money for Birmingham Children's Hospital, Citizen Aid, Cure Leukaemia and St. Basil's.

The event, which was hosted in the Legends’ Lounge, centred around the forthcoming Blues v Wolves derby on Monday 4 December (KO 7.45pm). 

Blues legends Geoff Horsfield and Paul Devlin were joined by Wolves legends Steve Bull and Don Goodman on an evening that was presented by Tom Ross. 

The fundraiser started with a Q&A, before heading into a Mastermind question round with each legend choosing a specialist subject. 

A combined round of legends and Barristers answering football and law questions followed with both sides finishing in a draw.

A raffle and auction rounded off the night, which featured many humorous moments and anecdotes. 

“It was a fantastic evening all round and as a Club we’re incredibly proud to be associated it,” said Ian Dutton, Head of Commercial. 

“No5 Barristers’ Chambers have not only raised plenty of money for the charities, but they’ve also raised awareness for four local charities. 

“I’d like to thank everyone who came, especially the legends, and I hope you thoroughly enjoyed the evening.”

The #GetShirty campaign started in October to help raise awareness for four Birmingham-based charities. 

No5 Chambers have kindly agreed to donate their back of shirt sponsorship to a charity for the Wolves fixture with Birmingham Children's Hospital winning a Twitter vote, which received 2,293 votes in total. 

In addition, No5 Barristers’ Chambers also agreed to donate 50p per vote to all the charities and this was increased to £1 per vote on the final day of the campaign meaning a total of £1,202 was raised.

The Club and No5 Barristers’ Chambers would like to thank everyone who voted.
